December 3, 2021 Viltrox RF 85mm F1.8 STM Image Gallery

In mid 2020, I reviewed the Samyang RF 85mm F1.4 autofocus lens, a lens that I really liked and gave a very positive review of because it was a good performing third party lens that came at a reasonable price ($699 USD).  Canon’s own RF 85mm F1.2L is an amazing, amazing lens (you can read […] [Read more...]

November 26, 2021 Canon RF 100mm F2.8L Macro IS USM Review

The Canon EF 100mm F2.8L Macro IS USM holds a very unique place in my personal lens kit; it has lasted longer than any other lens.  I have had dozens of lenses come and go since I purchased the 100L Macro back more than a decade ago.  I’ve changed cameras a number of times, and […] [Read more...]

November 8, 2021 Tamron 28-75mm F2.8 Di III VXD G2 (A063) Review

Tamron’s first full frame lens for Sony mirrorless, the Tamron 28-75mm F2.8 RXD was an unqualified success.  I lauded it in my review, as, although the lens was fairly plain in terms of build and features, it had excellent autofocus, very good optics, and a very reasonable price…not to mention a very reasonable [Read more...]
